An air- raising affair

The Apocalypse is coming...

The Apocalypse is coming...

We are all aware about the drastic changes in climate over the years. And to top it up, frequent catastrophes like Tsunami, Earthquakes etc. etc.

These are so called natural catastrophes, but if one analyses in depth, it will be clear that mankind is responsible to a huge extent for these mishaps.

Movements of the earth's surface are caused due to internal pressures. Where do these pressures come from? Thousands of constructions take place every day in various parts of the world. If one city is destructed due to an earthquake, hundreds of new buildings mushroom there in no time.

Earth has been exploited since ages. Be it for mining, extraction of resources, building structures or tapping ground water. We do so not only to survive but to lead a comfortable life as well. But will our lives remain comfortable for long if this mass destruction continues.

Trees, which play a major role in keeping the surface intact, might soon become a part of History.

The earth's movements not only affects its inhabitants but also the climate. I am neither a scientist nor a researcher, but for me the simple fact that it is becoming hotter each year is enough evidence to understand the consequences we will face shortly.

Climatic changes have begun long back in a negative way. If we don't take immediate action, it will definitely be too late to repair the damages. All this can be stopped if and only if each and every man understands the threat he is facing and steps forward to prevent the devastating after effects.

Hoping that governments and organisations are there for our safety is an understatement. We have to stop this. Alternatives are many but they seem to involve a lot of hard work. Governments and organisations can spend enormous amounts on developing sattelite images, probing other planets or even conducting conferences to discuss the global threats, but are these fruitful?

We have no time and time is of the essence.
Let's restructure the earth before we expedite doomsday and suffer through global warming, earthquakes, floods, storms, landslides etc.

Let's not say goodbye, not now!

Barry's Response - Not exactly fire and brimstone, but close enough. Thanks, Raj.

So sad, so true
by: KOTO

Aloha Raj Rasool:

I hear you loud and clear and agree. Man is the cause of all our problems, mostly for profit and many are a waste of skin thinking only of themselves and today, not tomorrow.

I'm often ashamed to call myself a human for what we have done and continue to do. The power of the leaders suck and the powers above, along with mother nature, will take us out as we destroy this beautiful place.

I only wish there were more people like you and I to take control and start the healing of our beautiful home, to only be able to turn back the clock to when people only took what was needed and planted and took care, keeping our soil and groundwater, along with our air, as unpolluted as possible.

Thank you for you thoughts, health, long-life, inner-wealth and peace for you and yours.

With Aloha KOTO

That is the wildest fear mongering comment I have ever read. If you were to drive across Canada, all you would see are trees. Trees everywhere, no towns or villages, just nothing but trees.

Nature puts more pollution into the air than all mankind does, one good volcano can cloud the air for months.

Do you have concerns about air pollution in your area??

Perhaps modelling air pollution will provide the answers to your question.

That is what I do on a full-time basis.  Find out if it is necessary for your project.
